45 yrs ago today Otis Redding made a splash as we lost him and his band in a tragic plane crash in Lake Monona on Dec 10, 1967. Interesting article from Doug Moe today:

I remember listening to the reports of his death on WISM-AM (they were a Top 40 radio station) when I was living in the dorms back in 1967.

Interesting to read one of his band members survived the crash. Two band members didn't board the plane because it was too crowded. Talk about three lucky guys.
